Ok so my girlfriend actually liked this much to my surprise. So now the question is how? I don't know much about sour mash which I believe it is based off of. I've made clones of 3floyds before with some luck but this one threw me for a loop to even taste what was in it (I had like 4 glasses of shark pants prior so my pallet was wrecked bad)

I looked it up on BA, and it appears to be an imperial witbier. Also, the name is spelled "Thick White Freeks" on BA and RB, so it's hard to find under the OP's spelling.

The few reviews I read didn't reference sourness, so I don't know that they did a sour mash. I'm guessing the wheat and the orange or lemon zest gave it that tartness.

But my advice would be to take a standard witbier recipe, scale up the grain bill to 8.5% ABV, and see what you get.
